Since 2019, as part of Tomorrow’s Engineers Week, the Royal Academy of Engineering has led This is Engineering Day to raise awareness of how engineers make a difference in the world and celebrate how engineers shape the future. This year, This is Engineering Day lands at the start of COP26. 

Engineering and technology shape the world around us and play a critical role in addressing some of the greatest global challenges of our age but we need to improve the number and diversity of those entering the industry. 

This is Engineering Day challenges misperceptions of engineering and inspires the next generation to join the profession. 

Three new This is Engineering films have been released, featuring 2 engineers sharing their stories and encouraging young people to shape a better, more sustainable future, by choosing engineering.
